Murdering the Easter Bunny

The Twirl and Swirl of Letters

We often get inspiration from things that have happened to us, or to our family members. So, today write down a favorite family story, or one that you just heard.

Back before my grandparents were married, my grandfather drove my grandmother’s much younger siblings to visit their father.

As they were driving, a rabbit darted out into the road. My grandfather could have done one of two things–stop suddenly and have the kids catapult out of the car or hit the rabbit.

He hit the rabbit, and then said, “There goes the Easter bunny.”

My great aunt and uncle have never forgiven him.
